    People see me as a lazy,

    uninteresting and unsociable person because I always drag myself during the day, but when the night comes I simply come to life. Idk how to explain it but I suddenly want to do stuff and I have these vivid ideas and thoughts about everything.

    Can never sleep. At night feel anxious

    and very lonely. But when I'm around people I struggle to talk. But my eye twinkle and I smile at beautiful things.

    I know for sure I'll be having an all nighter

    tonight. I'll be leaving home in two weeks to study abroad in France. So I thought I'd do something to relieve my mom of the stress she has and surprise her. Our garage, where her office is, is full of so much stuff, mostly unwanted stuff. It is fully packed and so dirty. But I...

    While, like many others here,

    I derive pleasure in my nighttime ponderings, it is often times a very damning circumstance. 1. With farmer blood flowing through my body, I rise very early. And 2. for some odd reason, the day people are trying to convert me.

    During early Autumn,

    when days are still warm enough for swimming and Summer holiday crowds are long gone from the beaches and seafront promenades, I often take a week's seaside holiday. During the day I swim and walk along the beach to a headland that rises to a sharp peak, taking in the views...

    At 2am I went for a walk in the rain

    because I couldn't sleep and this creepy man came up to me and asked if I wanted candy. Did he think I was 8 or is he just that stupid? Of corse I'm not going to want ******* candy from a sketchy man in the dead of night. Bruh

    alive. Suddenly my tired eyes are soon awake and sleep doesn't seem so comforting anymore. Although once i do fall asleep, it's even harder for me to get out of bed. I like knowing that i should be sleeping but the calming hours of the night just relax you and the world seems to...

    I Wanted To Be A Nurse....

    Well I went to college to be a nurse. It was a huge dream and I really wanted it so much. I ended up becoming a CNA and taking care of the elderly which is very hard work but yet very rewarding. I spent 4yrs taking care of our moms/dads and grandparents. I formed many bonds...

    The owl perches once again. It would not be a big deal if the owl didn't have class in the morning. The owl lays in a nest of strategically arranged blankets that sit precisely to her liking. She types away at her dying laptop Is it worth it to get up and get the charger...

    So many people try to banish the night- at

    least its darkness. Turning on all the lights and trying to be able to see clearly all through it. As if we don't need darkness. What happened to having it in our lives? When did we bastardize the dark/light cycle? Our bodies thrive with some healthy darkness and I can barely...

    .. why not a "night elephant" or "night snail"?

    When I go out on the weekends all I can think

    about is going home and crawling into my bed. Unfortunately if I'm not in bed after 2am I won't fall asleep until the sun starts to rise. I will literally lay in bed restless until the butt crack of dawn then waste half my day sleeping. It's 4am here and I am wide awake.

    "The night is for passion.

    It’s for fanaticism, romance and trouble. It’s when your most tender, authentic and suppressed sides come out to play under the nonjudgmental eyes of the stars."
